Last week, our Teaching Assistants completed a socially distanced two-day course called ‘First Aid in Mental Health’.
This is an accredited Level 3 course which took 15 hours of study and covered 17 modules which included Depression, Eating Disorders, Self Harm and how to help someone suffering with poor mental health.
The TAs completed this course to enable them to fully support our pupils and enhance their pastoral role. Each module looked at different mental health conditions, how to provide support for pupils and colleagues along with creating a positive mental health environment within the workplace.
A HUGE well done to all of the Teaching Assistants for completing this course and passing the test!
